Came here for breakfast and ordered the eggs Benedict, they were cooked to perfection! Service was phenomenal as well. Would highly recommend Moxie’s Dixon Road if you are close to the Toronto Airport area!

Everything was wonderful and our server was fantastic. I hate to complain because our server was very very nice (and I doubt what happened was her fault), but on the booking for this lunch on OpenTable, I had specifically written that it was my friend’s birthday and I would like a flourless chocolate cake and gelato for dessert with a candle to surprise her. I was really disappointed when these items were never even brought out or mentioned at the end of our meal and we just got our checks. It was too late for me to surprise her at that point and so it kind of ruined my birthday lunch plan in that way. Other than that, the patio is really nice for summer time and they even have an enclosed patio that makes it feel like summer and protects you from the sun!

The service was amazing and our server (John I think is his name) was very attentive throughout our meal. He was also very knowledgeable about the menu. My biggest problem was the food itself. My fish tacos tasted terrible... The fish was watery tasting and bland and the cabbage/veggie slaw tasted old. It tasted so blah that I had it sent back. The calamari was good as an appetizer but it was a very small portion. They make it sound so plentiful on the menu but it comes out pretty small. The better appetizer is the chips and dip. The pasta was decent too. All in all, the food didn't live up to what it was promising. Joey's has a similar menu and price point and tastes ten times better. I would much rather recommend that restaurant over Moxie's.

Im a fan of the Moxies chain but theis is a location I won't be returning to. I'm sure the fact that it was a busy Friday evening had something to do with it, but still, it didnt even come close to what i expect or have received in the past at other locations. My steak was over cooked, the vegetables were undercooked, the waiter offered us fresh ground pepper 3/4 of the way through the meal, and they walked by us several times with empty glasses and never once asked if we wanted refills. Staff was very nice and pleasant, but the lack of attentiveness paired with the food is enough to ensure I will travel farther to one of the other Moxies locations.

Our server was wonderful! Very attentive and a great representation of your brand. We would come back for him, for sure.

One of the guests had the lettuce wraps as their meal. Was shocked at the small amount of chicken included considering they paid an additional $6 to have it included.

No mention of our special occasion, food was horrible, we ordered the fish tacos, they had the tiniest bit of fish the size of a dime in the fish taco, with one super tiny sliver of avocado, I guess it was a garnish...literally the taco was stuffed completely with coleslaw... really, if I wanted a salad I would of ordered one! So not worth the money, guess the kitchen staff is to lazy to make it right!

Mixed reviews should be taken seriously. Although we were seated promptly with our reservation, we waited an hour and a half for our food. The server and manager were both apologetic and offered free drinks and soup or salad appetizers to compensate for the wait. When our mains finally arrived, they were mediocre at best. We appreciated the effort of the server and manager to make amends, but we would not recommend this location. Perhaps on a weeknight their service and food quality might be better, but we wouldn’t take that risk.

I waited almost 15 minutes for a server to even approach the table and say hello. Almost ready to walk out.
As I had ample time to read the menu and make a choice, I didn’t have to wait an unreasonably lengthy time for my food, which was tasty enough but not outstanding. I had barely taken a bite when the server miraculously reappeared to ask me how everything was.
Portions were not large, which was OK, perhaps the cost could be less.
Overall, poor experience. Little to no chance of returning.
Disappointment

Great food, nice atmosphere, decor and layout.

I wish our server would have been more attentive, than just taking my date's and I order and bringing out our meals.

I ordered pasta, dish was great, but our server did not ask us if we wanted cheese or ground pepper. I had to ask for it. Typically at other Moxie's locations and similar restaurants, the server would ask or bring out cheese/ground pepper.

We called the restaurant to make a reservation- no answer. We made a reservation online through Open Table, received a confirmation and arrived at Moxie’s only to find it CLOSED! Nothing posted, no details for customers and certainly no message on their voicemail! Serious lack of customer service!! We took our business elsewhere and will not go back to Moxie’s.

While the team were pleasant and friendly, and the food relatively good there was a real knowledge gap on: menu details and how to address dietary restrictions, how to ensure speed of service as well as dealing with a food safety and handling issue. So as a result not looking to return to this location or in fact other locations in the chain’s group.
